I’ve also been baking as much of my own bread as I can as well as
hamburger and hot dog buns. I’ve been a little afraid to do it
entirely on my own so I have been “cheating” a little bit by letting my
bread maker make the dough for me and then baking it in the oven. So
far everything has turned out great. I go to a Mennonite bulk store to
load up on all kinds of flour and spices very inexpensively so I feel
like I’m saving money on bread items. The only problem is that it all
tastes so great that I’m afraid that I’ve started to gain weight.
